dude was raised catholic, jewish last name, half white, half latino

he is is the mixed pot that is representative of america. he is america and this shooting is just emblematic of the tragic assassination of black youths and the perpetuated institutional racism against blacks in american culture.

If you're running towards someone and pursuing them on foot, you can't later plead self defense after you fatally wound them. I don't see how that's even logical. This latino kid wasn't a police officer. He's not afforded the same permissions. He's a citizen with a carry license that chased a person down and ended up killing him. Murder or man-slaughter. But certainly not self defense.

Exactly. This is the point bmulls is missing. Zimmerman doesn't have any authority to chase down and apprehend anyone. He's just as much a civilian as Martin was.

Which is why bmulls argument makes no sense. You can't chase down someone for any reason, initiate a conflict then shoot the person cuz he's getting the best of you in the conflict you started. Martin has just as much a right to his life as Zimmerman. Zimmerman violated Martins personal space.

I think we also need to understand the slippery slope that stereo typing brings. I've read some posters trying to justify this incident based on past trangessions in that neighborhood.

Just think what would happen if all stereotypes were acted upon. Should we be able to attack middle eastern people and then claim I thought they might be a terrorist? Or rape a provacativly dressed woman and then say I thought she wanted to have sex. Or attack a white man for looking at my young child cuz I thought he might be a child molester. Or maybe we should make it harder for Asians to get a discard license cuz they have a rep for being bad drivers.

If ignorance changes our society then we'll go down damn soon.

And especially in this freaking case, the kid had his hoodie on because it was RAINING. So he's supposed to get all wet just because some nutcase can't think clearly?

F*CK Fox News and this clown Geraldo..
